Beef with Fat and Muscle Debate


Have you heard of the old addage that muscle weighs more than fat? In essence, the idea is that when you slim down and get buffed, you'll be a smaller, more slender person, but you might weigh more than when you were chunky, right?!?! You follow?

So last week I read the THIRD article where it was a Q&A about this - "Does muscle weigh more than fat?" And for the third time I read this totally upsetting and retarded reply - [in a mocking tone] "Technically, a pound of fat weighs the same as a pound of muscle, so no."

I'm getting upset just thinking about this...

According to these geniuses, 'technically' nothing weighs more than anything. If I asked, does steel weigh more than feathers? Their dumbass argument would still be the same - a pound of steel weighs the same as a pound of feathers. Well, no shit!

Why do these people get a voice in the world??????

I had to get that off my chest...

LOVE the autographed picture of Arnold in the Alps. We could have used that at the Junction. The difference these retards aren't noting is that muscle is DENSER than fat. Meaning it takes up less room. A pound of fat and a pound of muscle weigh the same, yes, but the fat might fill up a lemonade pitcher and the muscle would only fill up a shot glass. SO, you can have three pounds of muscle in your stomach that looks like a six pack, and doesn't make you any bigger, or three pounds of fat in your stomach that makes you go up a size.

THAT'S what people are asking. Does a "pinch" of muscle weigh more than a "pinch" of fat? YES. And a "pinch" of steel weighs more than a "pinch" of feathers. Glad that the writers of these articles are making everything so clear by toying with the rhetoric instead of getting to the point.
